Located just north of Tampa, Barrington Hill Farm was the perfect place for Brandy and William to have their Florida wedding. The estate is surrounded by lush, beautiful grounds, which made for a memorable backdrop for all of Brandy and William’s friends and family. Genya of Vue Photography captured every moment from the shabby chic wedding, starting at the couple’s teary eyed first look and ending with a send-off underneath a sky full of fireworks.
Brandy and William
Barrington Hill Farm, Tampa Bay, Florida
The most memorable part of the day was definitely the first look. All of the anticipation and excitement that built up over the 2 years we spent planning our wedding peaked as I walked down the stairs of the bed and breakfast toward my soon-to-be husband and placed my hands over his eyes. The tears in his eyes and adorable look on his face once he turned around made all of the planning worth it.
One point of comic relief during the ceremony was when our officiant, my friend Leanne, realized that she left the rings in her purse. Her friend Darren tiptoed down the aisle with the rings in utter humiliation. We all laughed, and it gave me a chance to catch my breath, steady my nerves and enjoy the moment.
Working with Genya O’Neall of Vue Photography was an absolute dream! I feel like I would have truly been lost without her that day. Anytime I began to feel stressed about the timeline or something that didn’t go according to plan, Genya was there with the perfect words and upbeat attitude to get me right past it. I also never felt posed or uncomfortable in front of her lens and could NOT be happier with the way our photos turned out.
The most important thing was making sure our guests enjoyed themselves. We spent a lot of time thinking about little details that would make our guests happy like silk fans at the outdoor ceremony site, music that would appeal to everyone, a menu of comfort food and of course, the specialty bourbon bar and our homemade infused whiskey favors.
